Purex Crystals ScentSplash Review and Giveaway

Date Thu, April 9 2015

A while back, I wrote about Purex Crystals, a product that does exactly as the name suggests. By adding a little, or a lot, of these crystals into your washing machine, you can boost the scent of your laundry. ScentSplash is one of the newest Purex product, and it replaces the crystals with liquid scent boosting power.

Now, I’m not necessarily sure why liquid might be better than crystals. I suspect it’s a little more effective, and it might be good if your machine has trouble dissolving the crystals. You can use it in your washer or washing tray, which you can’t do with the crystals. It’s heavier, however. Dry crystals are less messy, too.  It’s really a toss up in my mind.

The folks at Purex sent me a bottle of ScentSplash to review, so I tried it out with my next load of laundry. Since you can use a lot or a little, I tried about 1/2 of a cap full of product. I can’t recall how much I used with the crystals, but I think I poured it into the washer without “measuring” the the caps.

The result was extremely fragrant laundry. I could smell it in the laundry room, in the dryer, in the basket and in my closet. I’ve used a towel for multiple days, and it still smells like the product. My clothes smell predominantly like the scent, even if I am wearing fragrance.

So, there’s a lesson for me. I’ll definitely use far less product for a more subtle scent!

It’s not that it’s bad. It’s just that it’s strong, and I prefer something a little more fruity. I used this with Purex Powershot, and none of the scent of the detergent could be detected at all. In fact, with so many scent boosting products, I’m not entirely sure why laundry soap is even scented anymore!

I received a bottle in the scent Fresh Spring Waters, but there are two other scents available: Fresh Lavender and Fresh Mountain Breeze.  The scent descriptions aren’t super helpful. For example, mine is described as:

Wade into cool, enchanting waters and give your laundry an incredible just-washed freshness that lasts for months.

To me, there’s definitely a  floral scent, but I wouldn’t be able to tell you what kind of flower. My nose just doesn’t work that way.

Because this is a new product, it’s not available from every retailer — yet. You can keep an eye out for this product on the shelves at your local Target, Walmart or Walgreens.

And you might just have a coupon in your hand to try that product for free if you enter the giveaway below!

Not only did Purex provide me with a free sample, but I have three coupons to give away to three different winners in either the US or Canada.

You know the drill, form below!

Good luck!

    Hi Amanda, it’s NEVER safe to place your email address directly in a comment body. I recommend curbing this behavior now and avoiding any giveaways that ask for that like the plague!
